Teavivre Lapsang Souchong + Empire Tea Services Earl White. My plan was an uptown cowboy earl – rhinestone earl? lol :) Yeah, that was the plan. It smells lightly smoky and bergamot. The taste is kind of too little of everything. I steeped 3 minutes. This shouldn’t happen. It is like the two teas cancelled each other out. Both teas are very flavorful on their own but the combination is less than amazing. I be sad :(

I’ve been experimenting with some lapsang combos lately, & a lapsang earl was in my mind, but I haven’t tried it…yet! The London tea room, here in St. Louis, has a blend called The Churchill, which is a blend of smokey black tea & bergamot. Perhaps I’ll try it on my next visit.

Others have combined smoky with bergamot with great success. I think ETS’s bergamot is just unigue enough it doesn’t work.

I think it’s a worthy experiment!
